PLAM: Part 2, "I'm Sorry, Hyong-chol"

Please use this thread for discussion of Part 2 of Please Look After Mom.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Y'all are going to laugh- but I misplaced my book about halfway through part 2.  It's somewhere in the house (probaby under the furniture due to feline assistance)

I found it - finally.  The cats had knocked it behind my desk, into a little space just big enough for a paperback.  I found it while vacuuming.

 

Since I'm behind - and am swamped at work - I'd like to continue the discussion of Please Look After Mom through July and choose a book to read for August then.  Cool?

That's fine with me. Right now, I deep into Nadine Gordimer's latest anthology of short stories: Life Times and I'm enjoying tremendously one short story after another . I am about to translate one of them into French as part of a Master degree in English Literature which I'll try to complete in 2014.

As for PLAM, I really think that it was a well written book despite the unusual "place" of the narrator. Moreover its central  themes are universal: solitude, generation gap, relationship between husband and wife, town/country life differences, children/parents relationship,  illiteracy..Might be a bit too painful though...

Good luck with the Master's! :smileyhappy:

 

Yes, PLAM is very bittersweet.
